Default First Pics of the Ati 4890

First pics of the HD 4890 appear - Neoseeker News Article

Not all THAT exciting, but the cards are out somewhere, meaning they should be very close to being released. This is more than likely why they cut the price of the 4870 and 4850

Oh wow looks like my EK blocks will fit these! But it doesn't seem worthwhile upgrading from the 4870 unless you don't have one

Right now i'm only running a 4850. I wonder how much of a performance increase that sucker would offer :)

Don't worry, the 5xxx and GTX3xx series are coming, just don't expect them till sometime in the fall. I haven't been following rumors as closely as I have in the past but whats what everything seems to be pointing to.
